Have you ever thought you want to play a golf course that suits your length off the tee? You're not alone.
TEE IT FORWARD is a new initiative scheduled July 5-17 for golf facilities nationwide. The goal is to help golfers have a more overall enjoyable experience by playing from a set of tees that is best suited for their games based on their driving distance. The PGA of America and United States Golf Association partnered to support the initiative. GCSAA is encouraging its members to support the initiative with the golfers and leadership at golf facilities.
The intention goes something like this: hit 6- and 7-irons instead of hybrids and long irons on approach shots, shorten distance traveled on each hole, and reduce the number of lost golf balls. All of those factors are expected to make it a more enjoyable round on the golf course.
Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf, introduced the concept for TEE IT FORWARD. Golf legend Jack Nicklaus gives a thumbs-up to the initiative.
